Yes indeed! There is one beach in Jax that allows beach driving. Huguenot Memorial Park The only other drivable beaches in the area are south of St. Augustine at the Matanzas Inlet area. I'm not sure about north of Jax, though. Huguenot is accessible by most vehicle types, but cars should take extra caution in the soft sand. If you get stuck, though, there are plenty of helpful 4x4's out there.

Actually you can drive onto several beaches in St. Johns County. You do need a sticker pass, $6 for the day or $30 for the season. Other than with a 4x4 you drive at your own risk.

That's great. So no hauling of gear at all. Just park and setup shop. I'm going to like this relocation.

Hugueont Park has gotten really over crowed and way too many rules. You cant even drive down to the point...by the way is so beautiful at lowtide, until August because of all the birds. Over half of the beach is closed off. The dogs are all cramped into one section now...DOGFIGHT...And at high tide you can just forget about it all together. And the point is where all the fishing and jetski riding is done. Anyway, I go on down about 5 miles just over the Nassau sound bridge and go on the beach there. Must have 4x4 to enter, but so much cleaner, nice and peaceful. Almost like your own little private beach.

Huguenot is still the best. We must fight for the park before it is lost to the birds for the next ten years.

Ocean City, MD also allows this. Not quite as exciting as it may sound, but 2WD sand donuts in a pickup truck are quite an experience!

Can you camp on the beach?

Is there a map of said driveable beaches? My kid is already talking about the beach and our move is still a month away.
